Making travel arrangements can be a hassle, especially when booking flights. Oftentimes, picking an airport to fly into can determine vacation budgets, but luckily, Google’s got it covered.
Instead of searching by destination, Google Flights Search now allows you to look up regions. The broader set of results lets users see various airports in the area, instead of focusing on a specific location. The web-based tool, launched in 2011, gives the option of booking flights based on your available range of time or budget.
Now, with its new feature, instead of typing in “London” and being automatically directed to a list of flights, you can enter “England, United Kingdom.” A list of different airports and prices in the region will appear, from Bristol to Leeds. And just in case you’re willing to switch up your plans, Google plots prices for surrounding areas in France and Ireland, too.
Purchasing a trip on Google Flights only works from the US or Canada, but includes global destinations. For those who are still unsure of where to head for spring break, searching by region might be easier on the pocketbook.
